Non-Airplay Compatible TVs

Let’s say your TV belongs to an older model of Samsung, LG, Panasonic, etc., which does not support Airplay but does support Screen mirroring by other protocols like Miracast; then still, you can connect your Macbook to them using FlashGet Cast software.

Follow the below steps;

  • First of all, connect Mac & TV to the same wifi.

  • Open the web browser on the smart TV and input the URL shown on the Macbook screen. Run the QR code using your Macbook camera.

Well, the Cable method is the fastest and safest, but it can be a little messy & you need to spend extra on buying the cables.

The Second Dongle method operates wireless, and it is pretty clean. But Chromecast & Miracast dongles are not cheap, and sometimes due to poor wifi, they cause a lot of lag.

The last third-party method is the cheapest and neatest there is. You don’t need to buy anything or no need to connect anything to the TV. Just install some software & start enjoying.

However, if you are looking for software to connect iPhone/Android to PC, in that case, we recommend using FlashGet Cast, Letsview, Anydesk, and other similar software because they are totally free, easy to set up, and work both wirelessly & with cables.
